Lino Ventura was an actor in the French masterpieces “Classe Tous Risques, Elevator to the Gallows, Touchez Pas au Grisbe, Le Deuxieme Souffle, and Army of Shadows. All are great films dealing with crime, gangsters, drama, and suspense. In the middle of making all these great films, Ventura made this film Les Tontons Flinguers, which translates to Crooks in Clover or for Americans it was titled Monsieur Gangster, I suppose since the title Crooks in Clover seems a little obscure. This film is totally unlike the aforementioned masterpieces, although during film conception, the producers contemplated another film like the list of masterpieces. I’m going to give it 3 stars. The critics also disliked it, but the French audiences defied the critics and packed the theatres.
